32S North Higgins
Missoula, Montana, January 26, 1918. .
To the Families of Men in the Military Service of
the United States:
Congress has passed a law requiring men in the
military service to make certain allotments out of
their salaries to their wives and children. It per
mits them to make allotments to other near rela
tives. The government agrees to add certain al
lowances to these allotments.
The act further provides for compensation to
men who are disabled in the service and permits in
surance to be taken out for the benefit of the men
and their dependents.
You are probably not familiar with your rights
under the law.
The Missoula Chapter of the Red Cross will
gladly furnish you information and advice in regard'
to these matters, free of charge. For this purpose
an office will be open in the courthouse every
Thursday evening at 8 o'clock. This office will be
the room just west of the office of the county su
perintendent of schools.
The Hume Service Section of the Red Cross will
he glad to be of service to you in this way. It will
also be ready to advise with you in regard to anv
other troublesome matters.
